Apparently even the power of Tony Robbins was not enough to keep 21 attendees at his firewalking experience from getting hurt. The majority of those injured suffered second and third degree burns as Tony encouraged them to walk across hot coals which were burning at several thousand degrees. Although many people did complete it successfully, witnesses said that those who didn't were screaming in agony and required hospitalization. Here is the craziest statistic ever. Since Robbins' infomercials hit the air in April of 1989, they have aired every 30 minutes for 24 hours a day somewhere in North America. So, basically what that means is you have satellite you could have watched nothing but Tony Robbins for the past 23 years.
